頭のどこかで諦めてしまっている。体に力が入らず、何より気力がつきかけていた

I'm not sure how to interpret the meaning of かける in this sentence. What meaning does it have here?

Also, is this つき 尽き or 付き?

    @virmaior You think so? This looks to me like 尽きる "to run out"...

  • @senshin it's not the first time I've been wrong! Thanks for the correction. That does make much better sense.

It's 尽き

かける means almost

Example:

終わりかけた

(I) almost finished
